FOOD BOX GIVEAWAY — Palo Alto County Council on Aging and Bethany Lutheran Church have teamed up to distribute free food boxes to residents of Palo Alto County. The monthly distribution was held Saturday, April 17. This month, 594 boxes of food and gallons of milk were available to families of Palo Alto County. Cars lined up at the corner of 12th and Union Streets and headed north for the Emmetsburg distribution site. Volunteers were on both sides of the street, loading boxes of food and gallons of milk into vehicles. The food box this month (picture inset, above) included strawberry yogurt, chicken, a package of hot dogs, a bag of apples, a bag of oranges, a bag of potatoes, and cheese. As drivers proceeded through the line, boxes of groceries and milk were loaded into vehicles. Additional photos from the Food Box Giveaway are on page 2 of The Reporter.
